Your father is having a crisis. Those prophetic words began the cataclysmic events that would envelope an entire immigrant family and change their lives forever. Through the eyes of his seven-year-old son, the story of a transsexual and the incent victims of his rage emerges. Papi is an extraordinary story that has to be read to be believed. Sweeping through the last days of Batista's Cuba, Houston, and Los Angeles, family secrets, intrigue, and violence explode to cast dark shadows over a little boy's idyllic childhood. Through personal accounts, court documents and newspaper footage, the author weaves a riveting story that captures what was a most unusual court case in Houston in the summer of 1984.
